Working On A Pin Point Budget

Designed by Steven Gambrel, he transformed this beautiful Bronxville, New York home library (see below) into a lavish retreat. However, some of us may not have the same deep pockets to design such a lavish room.

The first place where you can start that’s the cheapest way is to freshen up your space is with a new coat of paint. It breaths life back into the room! Next accessories. As mentioned before in one of my old post just take something from another room. But make sure it serves a purpose while bringing function and style. It doesn’t makes sense to bring clutter into the new space. Check out your local antique, thrift, tag stores and let’s not forget the flea market. These places can be gold mines! What’s old is now new and what’s new is now being reproduced for 2x the price of what you just paid for in these places. You can also check out online sites such as E-bay, Etsy, Craigslist and E-bay Classifieds (formerly known as Kijiji).

Not everything you want to decorate has to be expensive. If you’re willing to put in a little elbow grease and research you’ll be well on your way with a new space transformed.

How would you transform your space? Where would you start? What would you keep or throw away? Send me your pictures and maybe I’ll post them.
